Mountain Weather 3/3/16

CB Avalanche Center Weather

Date: 3/3/16

Beautiful mountain weather is in store for today as a transitory ridge brings sunny skies with a few thin clouds and warm temperatures to the Elk Mountains. Clouds will increase again tonight as another shortwave rides north of our area. We should see a final brief clearing on Saturday morning as we happily wave goodbye to the east-bound high pressure ridge that has reigned supreme over our weather for the past month. The ridge’s departure opens the doors to a more active and snowy pattern. The first decent chance of snow arrives on Sunday.
